Author: pedrop

Hi, in the second day railfaning in Rumo railroad broad gause system in São Paulo state , I had the chance to find the stack train. This kind  of train is just starting in Brazil and Rumo is the first company to run double stack train. 
I also visited old railroad stations in the cities I visited along my way.
Enjoy
